It’s time for fall! In other words, it’s time to cozy up with loved ones. We’ll show you how you can bring a little bit of that fall feeling inside

There are many elements of the season that you can bring into your home. Here are a few great ideas. Hopefully what you read will spark a couple of your own!

Leaf Potatoes

This is a unique idea that you can use to liven up a typical dish: scalloped potatoes. Use a leaf shaped cookie cutter to cut potatoes into the shape of leaves. Use different colored potatoes in your recipe for a colorful take on a tried and true culinary classic.

Cookie Placeholders!

Here’s another use for your seasonal cookie cutters! Use them to cut cookie dough into cute shapes, then once the cookies have baked and cooled, use them as placeholders on your table. Label each cookie with a guest’s name in white or metallic icing and place them on top of each place setting for an elegant finishing touch.

Fall Treat Cocktail

This drink is delicious. It’s the perfect fall nightcap. Drink Responsibly! Combine 1/4 cup apricot brandy with 1/2 cup each of sweet-and-sour prepared mix and seltzer water, and 4 teaspoons of pomegranate juice. Dampen the rims of 2 martini glasses with a lemon wedge and dip them into colored cocktail sugar. Place the first three ingredients in an ice-filled cocktail shaker, mix vigorously, and pour into the prepared glasses. Pour 2 teaspoons of pomegranate juice into each glass; do not stir. This recipe make two drinks; Enjoy!

Hopefully these ideas will inspire new ones for you and your loved ones this season. Tell us what you come up with! We love to hear from you! Every week we’ll have more goodies to share on the Home Wizards podcast so be sure to tune in!
